Joining forces across The University of Birmingham and throughout campus, both the UoB Service desk and BurnFM have the aim of encouraging students to protect their incredibly valuable work by initiating a backup plan across various platforms.
Working in conjunction with the Guild of Students, both teams are looking to demonstrate the importance of backing up important files. What takes only a matter of minutes, can save hours of work – as well as helping to ensure that students aren’t hit with the unnecessary stress and pressure that comes with losing essential work.

Listen again to what she had to say when welcomed by Monday evening’s Burning Chat, in which she highlights the importance of the campaign, as well as recounting her own personal experiences regarding Backing Up:
